TEL Maintenance Intervals – Peterbilt with Cummins:

If you need to lease a truck, the Peterbilt is the best solution. With its wide range of features, owner operators are sure to get the job done efficiently and safely. However, it is vital to maintain your truck. So, when you lease a Peterbilt, make sure to follow these maintenance tips:

  • Grease job every 20-25k
  • Full oil change every 50k with semi-synthetic oil
  • The above intervals are per the manufacturer; oil changes can be up to 5,000 miles early, if you prefer
  • Replace the Davco fuel filter as needed
  • Replace the fuel filters on the engine every oil change
  • Replace the engine air filter every 90-100k miles
  • Replace the cabin air filter as needed. If you have a pet, this will need to be changed more often
  • Air dryer Coalescent filter must be replaced every 150,000 miles (the Peterbilt filter must be used); failure to replace this can cause emission system related issues
  • Drain your air tanks daily to prevent moisture build up in the air system which can damage emissions and transmission components
